on our weekly roundtable: The Ukraine creeps towards another boiling point. Pro-Russian protesters are refusing leave government offices they have been occupying, and the coup government gives them a deadline of Friday to vacate. Meanwhile NATO has announced that they have photos of Russian troops amassing at the Ukrainian border, a claim that Russia denies.
Russia is claiming that US mercenaries are already on the ground in the Ukraine and that they will start demanding advance payments from the Ukraine for Russian gas.
And as Israeli-Palestinian Authority talks are said to resume, they were halted last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now demanding that the Palestinian must pledge to the US that they will see the round of talks through to the end. Both sides have been blamed by the US for the halt in talks.
And this week marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, what has been its impact? What has changed, what has not?
Panelists are Jackie Goldberg, Tom Hayden and Dr. Gerald Horne.
